ABOUT

I've played everything from swing, to classic rock (Led, Sabbath, etc.) to death metal - and everything in between. I prefer to play classic rock / metal and thrash metal, but game for just about anything. I do have studio experience. I drink, but I don't smoke the green stuff - job reasons and all that...am cool with whatever though I don't judge sh*t :)

Influences

Bill Ward (Black Sabbath), Mitch Mitchell (Jimi Hendrix Experience), Charlie Benate (Anthrax), Dave Lombardo (Slayer), Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel / Death / various), Neil Peart, Lars Ulrich (hey, don't damn the man - he was a hell of an influence on modern metal), Animal from the Muppets...I grew up in the Seattle area in the '80s and '90s, so yeah, I have a lot of influence from that as well (and have sang for grunge cover bands...I can keep up with Chris Cornell, Eddie Vedder and Lane Staley - but I prefer to beat on things).

EQUIPMENT

A 7-piece Tama kit w/double pedal (rack mounted) and a 4-piece Tama kit, in the process of upgrading both. I have the drums and hardware for a full 12-piece rack mounted monster, but who wants to haul all of that? :/ I use Zildjian Z-custom cymbals on my 7-piece, and Paiste on my 4-piece. Currently have it all set up as a double bass monster on the full rack...is fun :)
